Ingredients

Chive Mayo:
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt 
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
BLT Salad Bites:
  • 3 ounces pancetta, cut into small dice
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar 
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 to 3 heads Little Gem lettuce (about 16 leaves) 
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Directions

For the chive mayo: Mix together the mayonnaise, yogurt, chives, lemon juice, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl; set aside. (The mayo can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.)

For the BLT salad bites: Saute the pancetta in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, chives, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Arrange the larger lettuce leaves on a serving platter. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of chive mayo onto the center of each leaf. Top with about 1 tablespoon of the tomato mixture and some crispy pancetta. Sprinkle with the Parmesan.
